When working with a miter saw, there is a considerable safety risk. This affects both beginners and professionals. Therefore, it is important to have appropriate miter saw accessories available for your safety when using this saw, so that you and your surroundings are spared damage from wood or metal parts.
The choice of material and the properties depend on the working environment. Depending on the area of application, you should only use those that are intended for the corresponding risk class. General work gloves are subject to risk class 2. Special work gloves are used in risk class 3 and are specified even more clearly during production. In terms of the nature of the material, they are even better tailored to individual risk.
It is best to connect an industrial vacuum cleaner to the miter saw.
If you work with the miter saw, you will end up with dust. We recommend a chop saw that already has a container for the cut material. However, many models are sold without this bag for the sawdust. As a result, when working with the saw, the dust is distributed all over the area and is a nuisance in small workrooms. Buy a collecting container immediately, and you will quickly get more cleanliness. Alternatively, you can also connect an industrial vacuum cleaner to the miter saw.
A good blade for the saw plays a key role in determining the result. The diameter and number of teeth play a major role here. The diameter is given in inches and should match the volume or diameter of the workpiece.
You will often receive only a single blade with your unit. After a few uses, signs of wear can be seen, and the desired results can no longer be achieved. It is therefore advisable to order one or two blades for the additional saw immediately.
The extension cable is used wherever the existing connection cable is insufficient for the necessary connection. Greater distances can also be overcome with these cables of different lengths. There are numerous models. A cable for the extension does not allow infinite bridging. To conduct the current with sufficient safety, the extension should be as short as possible. Some units don’t require a cord, you can choose a cordless compound miter saw if you don’t want a cord.
A cable for the extension must match the plug and the socket. To effectively prevent a cable break, the number of individual cables and the material used to sheath the cable is important. As the number of thinner wires increases, the cable remains elastic. A coating made of silicone or rubber is ideal. PVC coats are rigid and not recommended.
If you own a portable miter saw stand, you can ensure that your miter saw is perfectly positioned.
This gives you a perfect workplace for safe work. When working with wood and metal, high forces are released, and the miter saw must be ideally positioned. In addition to effective material processing, work safety is also improved. Often the feet can also be adjusted on the base.
A good base can be adjusted in height, and it adapts to your height. Your work is significantly easier, and the ergonomic posture prevents back pain. Transportable underframes that are stationary and can also be taken to any construction site are very practical. You will find excellent working conditions almost everywhere.
This table is, at the same time, a perfect surface for storage. Very long workpieces are easy to implement. As a rule, they are very light, are perfect for transport and can be set up in a few simple steps. So you can work wherever an action is required.
Like some other miter saw accessories, these glasses are mandatory in numerous areas and serve as protective equipment. This protects your eyes from various types of danger from dust and other influences such as sparks and splinters. Heat-resistant protective goggles are not made of plastic but of glass.
A distinction is made between temple glasses and full vision glasses. The glasses frame has ear hooks and consists of one or two discs. A voluminous lens for full-vision goggles is essential. The glasses are worn close to the head. To provide the best possible protection, an optimal fit is necessary.
Glasses are offered with adjustable length of the temples, the inclination, or adjustable rubber bands. Only with a perfect fit will harmful substances be kept away from your eyes.
From 80 dB, you should wear hearing protection. This protection is part of occupational safety and an important miter saw accessory. Noise can damage your health, and irreparable damage to your hearing occurs. According to the EC directive, protection should be available from 80 dB, from 85 dB it is required by law. When selecting the right hearing protection, it is not the sound insulation that is decisive and the orientation towards the work situation and working environment.
If there is permanent exposure to noise, earplugs made of wax, foam, or plastic are available. Earmuffs, on the other hand, are worn over the head and behind the neck. A hearing protector is similar to a headphone and covers the outside of the ear.
